About James

I have a relaxed approach to tutoring which not only helps the student to earn better grades but also have a comprehensive understanding of the subject material.

I believe that learning should be an enjoyable experience. Furthermore, the relaxed atmosphere empowers a student to easily recall information and the main ideas discussed in a class. I also help students develop new learning styles that will enable them to excel and become better learners.

To achieve this, I believe that personal interaction between student and tutor is vital; therefore I only offer very limited remote tutoring, though I accept work for review by email if request is given in a timely manner.

In my Junior year in college I tutored freshman and sophomores in Political Science. Most of the students who took advantage of the tutoring sessions were able to improve their performance in class quizzes and exams.

I was also fortunate to be a mentor in my sophomore and senior years. Through this experience I was not only able to offer my Mentees study techniques but also helped with expanding their ideas in the essays they were about to submit.

Most importantly I love teaching and see it as a service to the community.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Soccer

I have been playing soccer since I was six years old. Moreover, by the age of 12 I captained my school soccer team and led them to three championships within a 4 year period.

I also played for a local club in Maputo Mozambique for up to 2 years, where I also played a major role in the championship winning team.

I also coached under 14 boys and under 18 girls teams for over 2 years.

Most importantly, I love teaching this beautiful game.
